Jana's Shower

Jana had a fun bridal shower on Saturday. The food was delicious and it was great to get together. Carys enjoyed helping Jana with her gifts. Jana's cousin Katie made a cute video of Matt answering questions. She video taped him answering questions and then Jana would try to answer it the same way that Matt did. She had some fun questions like where and when was your first kiss? Jana did great and we all had a blast.

Happy Birthday Stacey!

Stacey is thirty! After watching President Hinckley's Memorial Service I'm grateful for the opportunity that I have had along with millions of other people to learn from him. He touched my life and made things simple so that I could understand them. I appreciate everything he stands for especially kindness, goodness and his marvelous sense of humor. He served continuously throughout his life. When he was discouraged his Dad's advice was forget yourself and go to work.

I remember being in the hospital 30 years ago after Stacey was born and feeling ovewhelmed with the great responsibility of motherhood. I wanted her to have the best example possible and of course I wanted the best for her. Stacey was a very alert baby not requiring a lot of sleep. I called her Little Miss Bright Eyes. She was always on the go abounding with energy.

To this day she is amazing and energetic! She is a wonderful daughter and beautiful young lady. I found some old pictures on the computer and thought it would be fun to share some. (I hope she doesn't mind I found quite a few.) She loves life, her family and her idea of the perfect job would be to work at Disneyland! She says if you have to work, you might as well be happy, and be at the happiest place on earth! She is a devoted wife, mother, sister and friend. She forgets herself and is such a hard worker. I am blessed to be her mom and love spending time with her. Happy birthday Stacey!
